Eligibility: Open to those writers who have received no payment for published manuscripts in the category they are entering (payment includes free copies of journals in which their work has appeared). Previous first and second place winners are ineligible to enter categories in which they have won. They may, however, enter other categories. Sinclair faculty, staff and spouses are ineligible.
Judging: Members of the Sinclair Community College faculty will select the winning entries. Winners will be notified by phone in March.
Fees: There is no cost to enter.
Winners: The winning entry in each category will receive a cash award. The above winners, along with those receiving honorable mention, will receive certificates suitable for framing. Contest winners will be presented awards during an April virtual ceremony. Winners need not be present; awards will be mailed.
